Mr. Holmes, trans women are not men. To aggresively misgender them like this is nothing short of bigotry. Fuck you, fuck your shitty podcast, and fuck your fucking hate and unexamined privileged.
So your evidence that Pete Holmes is a hateful bigot is solely the fact that he isn’t up to date on the politically correct parlance of transgenderism? Maybe you should help make him aware of the preferred nomenclature instead of just randomly attacking him. He’s like the nicest, least hateful human being on the internet.Source: lixvseverything
For those that don’t know, Pete Holmes is a comedian who hosts the popular Nerdist podcast You Made It Weird. I just listened to the most recent episode featuring guest Lennon Parham where Pete brings up the movie The Hangover 2, which as you may know is extremely transphobic.
Did you try contacting him, in some way (whether it’s Twitter, or Facebook, or email, or even just in comments on iTunes or the Nerdist site), and letting him know he made a mistake, instead of just calling him a piece of shit on a medium he doesn’t use?
I’ve heard him say on the podcast, many times, that he loves getting called out on his bullshit, he loves it when a listener corrects something he says, and he hates it when he gets something wrong.
‘Rough and Ready’ is obviously an intentionally humorous book. I found the dramatic reading as hysterical as anyone else but I’m seeing a lot of people saying that it’s “terribly written” and “worse than ‘50 Shades of Grey’”. ‘50 Shades of Grey’ (based on the extracts I’ve read) is a serious attempt at erotica that’s poorly written. ‘Rough and Ready’ (again based on extracts) is a well-written parody of bodice-ripping romance novels. “Galloping abs” isn’t bad writing, it’s a hilarious joke. So if you’re one of the many people I’ve seen mocking how poorly the book is written then the joke is on you. Mocking ‘Rough and Ready’ for being badly written erotica is like mocking ‘Blazing Saddles’ for being an inaccurate representation of life in the west, or picking plot holes in ‘Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace’.
